Have your say on Connecting Sheffield plans

3rd December 2020

Sheffield Chamber is encouraging businesses to get involved with the Connecting Sheffield consultation.

Connecting Sheffield is a long-term vision for travel into and around the city. The plans seek to build confidence on walking, cycling and public transport use. The overall aim is to ensure people feel enabled to make better travel choices. You can view the full plan here. The consultation is live and closes on 7th January 2021.

Head of Policy & Representation at Sheffield Chamber, Tom Sutton, said:

“It is important that our members and wider business community engage with the consultation process. The pandemic has forced us all to make different travel choices. We have to look long-term and towards the future and Connecting Sheffield provides the opportunity to do this. We recognise universally that the car can no longer be the default mode of transport. Active travel needs to be viable option and Connecting Sheffield seeks to provide the infrastructure to make this a reality. The consultation process is not designed to be onerous or time consuming. You can have your say via an interactive map or add a comment, equally you can put forward your views by phone or email. Help shape the plans and have your voice heard. Together we can shape Sheffield’s connectivity for the future.”

Further information and the consultation to input can be found here.
